Good place with nice sunrise, the road and the railway wasn't too noisy, toilets + shield for cooking with water (boil before drink)
Becarful it's not a free camping but a campsite from the DOC so 8$/person 18 and more years, 4$ 4 to 17 years, free 0 to 4 years

No longer a free site, $8pp and you can pay via eftpos or credit at the info center in Arthur's pass. Lovely big field with beautiful views. Two long drops and a covered space for cooking/eating. Sandflies were okay as long as you stayed where it was windy.

TOO MANY SANDFLIES. Great effort by the council but sadly too many sandflies to even sit out and have a drink :( loved this campsite so was a real shame. Beautiful setting, great shelter for cooking and standard portaloo.

Paid campsite, 2 long drops nice and clean. River nearly dry but still plenty of sandflies. Lovely view and not too noisy even though close to the road.

Now a Paid campsite, 8$ pp. Clean toilet. Some sandflies, but if you stay at a windy spot they are no problem. No cellphonereach.

Quite place close to the river. Toilets are very basics. This campsite isn't free anymore so it's a bit pricey for the spot

Great spot, fantastic views of the river and the mountains, a little noise from the road and the odd train but nothing too much, loads of room, there were only 5 campers and some people tenting, great spot for family's to run a muck
